Lucifer star Tom Ellis reportedly called the police to his Los Angeles house after a strange package was sent to the property he shares with his wife Meaghan Oppenheimer last month.

The 42-year-old actor, who plays Lucifer Morningstar in the American series, had to get law enforcement to investigate a 'glitter package' that turned up on their doorstep, according to TMZ.

The couple are said to have called the Los Angeles Police Department and filed a report after finding the mysterious package 'creepy'.

The publication reports that the so-called 'glitter package' was just a box filled with glitter and was allegedly addressed to Meaghan, not her famous husband - which caused the couple concern.

The LAPD's Threat Management team are said to be working on the case and have reportedly found a lead on a suspect.

However, it remains unclear where the parcel came from.

The Mirror has contacted Tom's representative for a comment.
